Have you ever said this to anyone @ a threat centre before?. Or something along those lines and if so how did it go down?

 

I expect they get called a lot worse, why speak to them at all? They're just a bunch of hoodies off the street.

before you have a "larf" with them on the phone- do bear in mind that they do record the conversations and if you end up in court with them that last thing you will want is them submitting transcripts of tape recordings as evidence of your attitude towards dealing with the debt

well i had one DCA on the phone yesterday asking me for the case number and name of the person handling my case regarding a complaint to the ombudsman i had made about MBNA's handling of the account E.G invalid default notice, placing of default on my credit file prior to the 14 days of a valid notice elapsing (no valid notice was received by the way) and unlawful termination of account. she went on to argue that the debt was not in dispute, saying i avoiding paying the debt back, well am sorry but i not avoiding it its a matter of priniciple. Why should i pay back a debt when they have acted unlawfully towards me.

 

So she went on and on about it saying she not believe that the debt is disputed and only their (MBNA's) conduct is disputed, well it doesnt matter what part is disputed as a dispute places the whole account in dispute not just 25% of the account. but she wasnt having it lol. So i told her look the account as far am concerned is in dispute with MBNA as such they can not pursue the debt until it is resolved and also the invalid default notice makes it unenforceable anyway. oh and that made her say the phone call is being recorded (never told me that at the begining of the call though lol) and we will use it in court as prove you are just avoiding your debt. I said i am not avoiding anything i told your colleague the the day before that i will only start making repayments once the ombudsman has investigated and told me of their final decision in which i may then take court action to resolve the dispute, i will pay what ever is left to be paid if anything then and not before. bet they dont have a recording of that conversation at court when they take me to court.

 

so then she went on about asking for the case number again and the case handlers name, so i said look if you hadnt argued with me i would have given it to you just like i have fully cooperated in all previous communications with your company. but after listening to you arguing with me about weather their is a dispute or not, which by the way its my decision weather i have a dispute with someone or not not bloody yours, so no i not giving you it. SO she says your legally required to, so i said oh yeah and under what law is that then? her responmse was look i not going into legal discussion with you i know what your required to give us i been doing this job long enough. so i said what long enough to get a degree un law or even study it? i ****ing doubt it because their is not legal requirement for myself to provide you with any information weather confidential or not only a judge or memeber of law enforcement agency can request such information in which i would be legally obliged to give to them. but not you, your just a woman sat at a disk on minimum wage looking at a computer making a 100 calls a day puposefully trying to mislead and intimidate people into paying regardless. So she said ok so your not going to give me the case number and case workers name? ERR ****ing no chance love goodbye.

 

LOL they take the **** so much, she says shell use the recording as evidence against me in court? doesnt she realise that the judge will just throw out the case given the current circumstance as its not enforcable, doesnt she know it would cost them a fortune in costs and paying me damages? cos believe me i will counter claim for damages.

 

Infact i sent them a formal letter of complaint, explaining to them everything in no uncertian terms including section 87 and 88 of the consumer credit act 1974, as its clear they not know **** all about the requirements of the act for default notices and case law for unlawful termination. i even dared them to take me to court and told them exactly what the judge would do and theyd be doing me favour taking me to court anyway as ill just bring a counter claim against them, MBNA and varde investment ireland ltd who bought the debt from mbna. somthing which mbna denied claiming the dca bought it, so their clearly trying to hide the fact they avoiding paying vat again which i also mentioned.

 

Thats pretty much how they talk to people on the phone, deliberatly missleading people as to the law and your rights as a consumer. And making pointless phone calls for pointless bits of information taht they not even entitled to. But telling me that their is no dispute when i have said yes their is and have letters both sent and received by me dealing with it to prove that their is a dispute, takes the ****ing ****. who the hell are they to tell me if i am or not in dispute? i think i have a better idea of weather i in dispute or not since its my decision weather to dispute something or not, not the decision of some unqualified missleading **** taker tryng to improve her monthly commision bonus on collected payments.

 

Am sorry for the rant but once i got going i just had to get it all out. but god help them ****s if they decide to take me on, ill walk right over the top of the ****ers. And mbna are ****ed cos the hm revenue and customs are pretty keen for the full details when i sent them an email about MBNA and varde investments so their ****ed an no doubt looking at another fine that is in the millions again lol

 

oh and sorry for the bad grammer etc but when i go on one my grammer and spelling goes to hell shortly followed by the DCA's :D

DON'T CALL THEM EVER!!!!!

 

IF THEY CALL - REFUSE TO COMPLETE SECURITY

 

DON'T INSULT THEM OVER THE PHONE.

 

Write to them and demand they send you a CCA that is enforceable.

 

Trust me, works much better than any verbal insult.


We live in an unmoderated country why should the net be any different?

This is the new phone being used in DCA call centers to keep them motivated.

Probably explains all the dribble that comes down the phone from them!

No. what motivates them is the commission and if you don't hit target you're out of a job.

 

It's no wonder so many resort to scare tactics, lies and deception, while the boses turn a blind eye and count the money.

 

Being serious I would like to see an end to commission in the DCA industry and audit of calls. This would wipe out 90% of the problems in one go, but I don't see the CSA offering to do this...wonder why.

 

Bank bonuses questioned, stop commission in the collection industry...thats the next campaign......watch this space
